the corner of camden and donna you can see this truck that hit the side of an apartment building. we learned that it's fortunate no one was hurt. i don't know i you can see by the passenger front wheel, that's where the gas meters are. the truck hit those but did not break them that would cause a fire. they were able to secure the building or the gas lines. i talked to the man who lives here. he wasn't at home at the time but his wife called him to say she heard a crash. and what it was was this truck, jay drains rueter service. he's not in custody. he was coming down camden and fell asleep at the wheel. he put his foot on the gas, hit a parked car, did a u-turn and you can see he hit the back of this volvo, the speed limit sign and ended up where he's at. that driver and the people

5:05 am
>> water is a problem. the nearest hydrant is -- this is like a wild land fire fighting circumstance. and that requires different clothing, different gear, different types of hose line. >> crews used a fire beat the spray water on hot spots. officials say they are making the proper adjustment in case of a future fire on that island. the cause is under investigation but crews say fireworks may be to blame. >> 5:05. let's check back with meteorologist christina loren. tell us about a cool start but decent looking day ahead. >> gosh, it's going to be so nice. these numbers, they are chilly to start. it's the beautiful rebound we're going to see later on this afternoon that you can all look forward to. not too hot, not too cool. it's a little brisk so feels like fall. temperatures at noon, we'll be in the upper 70s in some cities, fairfield 75, elsewhere though you see all of this green shading around the inner bay,
5:06 am
that's because the low clouds are going to be back throughout the morning hours. we're not expecting thick fog yet. by tomorrow we'll see that as an area of low pressure starts to move closer to the bay area. today these numbers are really hard to beat. widespread 70s from santa rosa to gilroy, looking good, the only 80 is out in fairfield as you make your way through the delta. your full forecast, we'll show you on a map who has the best chance in my next report. first your morning drive. >> good morning. we're looking here toward the golden gate bridge. this is fine as far as the flow of traffic. we'll show what you things are like on the maps. sensors show you the same for the golden gate bridge and the bay bridge into or out of san francisco right now. it is in the city itself where there are reports of a crash. just west of the reservoir, between that intersection and twin peaks boulevard is where a car went off the roadway.
5:07 am
there is a small fire. we're still getting details for injuries but this will affect local traffic at least for the timing. a light flow, of course residential in parts of that area. we're watching and we'll let you know. we have a smooth flow of traffic across the bay. san mateo and dumbarton bridge, both moving at the limit as you cross the bay. no problems along the peninsula or let's check the east bay. we see oakland, 880, past the coliseum. north into downtown construction around embarcadero, actually that's where it starts for both directions. >> appreciate it. you may not have it for breakfast but if chicken is on the menu today we advise you to proceed with caution a. public health alert for foster farm chicken after a salmonella outbreak. marla tellez is in the newsroom with what you'll need to know. >> first it's important to note a recall is not in effect at this point this is just a public
5:08 am
health alert but should not be ignored. according to the foster farms website the chicken is safe if properly handed and fully cooked. what's happened is almost 300 people most in california have gotten sick because of a salmonella outbreak linked to raw chicken. the the usda says the meat was packaged at three central california facilities one in livingston and two in fresno and distributed to stores here and also oregon and washington state. still somehow the salmonella reached people in 18 states in all most sickened in california. about 200 cases in california. unfortunately the outbreak is not linked to a specific product but the usda says suspect foster farm products are marked with one of the following combinations. you see them on the screen. p 6137, p 6137a and p 7632.
5:09 am
we have this on our website, log on any time to nbcbayarea.com. make sure your foster farm products are not the contaminated ones. i have reached out to company officials. one of the questions i asked is how likely is it that this health alert will turn into a recall. i'm waiting to hear back. coming up in my next report, how the government shutdown could be slowing the response time from food safety inspectors which as you know, are federal workers. we'll talk about that. >> absolutely. thank you very much. great advice for people to be careful of the chicken. >> a proposal to set operating hours for parks could abreality. yesterday the board of supervisor committee approve add plan to close city parks between midnight and 5:00 a.m. supporters of the bill say it would reduce vandalism and illegal dumping. opponents argue it unfairly

new this morning big congratulations to the nobel prize winners in physics announced hours ago. they won this year's prize for predicting the existence of the god particle, the particle is key to explaining why matter in understanding the atom. the prize is delayed by an hour which is highly unusual, so far no word what caused the delay. big celebrations no doubt there. the biggest cell phone maker wants a break from the u.s. government but scott says samsung is likely to find no one at the office. >> the worst luck. samsung has until today to convince the government's trade commission not to ban the sale of some of its cell phones and tablets. the problem as you point out is the government's closed for business. the international trade commission which despite its name is a u.s. government agency, says some of samsung's
5:14 am
older products violate apple patents and cannot be sold. you may recall earlier last summer that same agency said there were apple products that violated samsung patents so the white house stepped in and let apple off the hook. we do not expect the white house to help samsung. the securities and exchange commission says apple's practice of booking revenue through subsidiaries is a legal way to pay less taxes. in may apple's ceo faced an extremely mild congressional hearing over his company's tax avoidance policy. it's estimated that apple saved 9 billion in u.s. taxes last year. let's check the rest of the news before the bell. for that we turn to bertha coombs. good morning. >> good morning, scott. i'm thinking of calling my accountant about setting up something in ireland.

christina loren with a look at the forecast. >> i love my job. that's why i got into meteorology. good morning to you. to me rain or shine it's always good news. temperatures are looking really good out there right now. and weather's one of those things you get in one of those awkward moments you and one other person, no one around, hey, if you need something to go to, tell them hey, you know, it might rain tomorrow and the south bay's looking the best. that would be my advice. i get into those moments quite often. winds are on shore, and for us that means that cool ocean air will be transported all the way inland. we call it our natural ac and it's kicking. throughout the day as well you will notice more low clouds out there. but it's going to be nice for today. temperatures dropping off by 4 to 8 degrees so you'll notice that cooling especially at the coast. you are going to see a significant drop off in half moon bay and pacifica at the coast. as we get into your wednesday,

5:18 am
comfortable. don't you love fall in the bay area, mike. >> i do. i love it. we don't have that severe season here in california but there is a nice break. a crisp clear drive through that air right now in the south bay, construction, 880 and 280, the interchange, crews going on. they are starting to clear. the earlier slowing we saw has cleared and 17 t deer that was hit has been cleared. at least they have taken care of it and to the vet, whatever they can do. the dublin interchange, west 580, there is a little slowing and 84 starts to show the volume build. a bigger deal we're watching is westbound right around northland road. reports after grass fire. doesn't sound like a big deal but we're tracking this well, fires in the last weeks. we see slowing so there may be crews that arrived. there you go as traffic starts to build in toward livermore.
5:19 am
we'll continue to track that. here the approach to the maze, walnut creek interchange. all looking clear. look at the speeds close to the limit. let's get you a live look, the bay bridge, a smooth drive. no problems down the freeway and a clear view into san francisco just fine. we look at the north bay, we remind you in san francisco itself right by twin peaks reservoir there is a small fire, it sounded small, but we're going to track that again off the twin peaks reservoir. the northbound with the southbound build. no big deal, at the limit south out of novato. and across the golden gate bridge and the peninsula, that's clear. back to you. >> thank you. it's 5:19 now. we have an exclusive unit to update you on a story. after the unit found a series of accounting problems at sam tran, community groups calling for a closer look at the agency's financial records. demonstrators rallying in front of headquarters in support of
